Looking Forward to Change!
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - Joe Kiedinger
People tend not to handle change very well. As human beings, we’re wired to create routines and want to have our expectations met. When routines go awry or surprises hit, it can throw some of us into a tailspin. We wonder how things came to be this way, what we did to cause this chain of events, and grasp at straws to try and bring things back to normalcy. But, the worry is just not worth it!
As Mark Twain once said, “I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.”
But, you know what I think? Change is awesome! How else can we learn, grow and improve if we’re not willing to accept change? Rather than spending energy wondering how things came to be this way and trying to return things to the old standard, what if we used that power to charge ahead?
I’m a firm believer that there’s always a better way and I challenge my Prophiteers by “shaking their tree.” By being accepting of change, and pushing forward into new processes and new ventures, we can only go up from here!
Stay positive and push through into the future with an open mindset and nothing but opportunities will appear.
ACTION PLAN: When the next big change hits, stop looking back and look forward!
